“Terrific! Rock-solid writing, tough and true: captures the American military experience at a critical period in the nation’s history.”
-Tim O’Brien author of The Things They Carried
“The finest warriors of this century have been the Americans who fought their wars outside the restrictions of conventional military organizations. It has been said that it’s impossible to vicariously experience Vietnam, but Fighting Men, it seems to me, gives the reader the privilege of doing just that.” -W.E.B. Griffin (from the foreword)
